Matthew 5:14 (NET) You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden.
After Kole had been in his new office for two years, he had a speckles record of integrity. It wasn’t that he was never tempted to collect bribes like his predecessors, but he knew how to overcome imminent temptations in the place of prayer.
His MD invited him to his office. A conversation between them ensued:
MD: Mr. Kole, please come and sit down. I am so happy to see you.
Kole: Thank you, sir.
MD: I called you because I have been monitoring your office for the past two years. Mr. Paschal, who was there before you was very corrupt, he was removed because he gave this office a bad name. When Mrs. Umar suggested that we put you in that office, I didn’t agree with her. But she said she had worked with you and seen that you are a man of integrity. Now I see what she saw.
As everyone knows, my tenure as MD here will soon end, and I am recommending somebody for this Job. I would normally have recommended someone from my part of the country, but you have impressed me and I am recommending you as the next MD.
Kole was speechless. He was not even the tenth in line for the huge promotion. He remembered just three months ago when he was offered a seven digit bribe to manipulate some figures, but he didn’t. He prayed till the temptation lost its power. He later discovered that if he had taken the bribe the MD would have found out.
As you go into today, remember that the world has higher expectations from you because you are a Christian. Ask the Lord to help you walk worthy of your calling and shine your light in this dark world.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
